Hey folks! Here are the first two minis I've produced. As stated before, my buddy Raph is the artist. I take his pen drawings and make them into minis with a combination of Photoshop tricks and color. These took me...forever and honestly burned me out, but I think my batteries are just about ready to finish the set. Then I just need a game to put them in...
First is Abel, leader of the Pale Riders
Second is Kane, leader of the Undertakers
Enjoy! Feedback more than welcome. (Sorry if this is the wrong forum, wasn't positive...)
They say post-apocalyptic western fantasy sci-fi to me for certain. It just occurred to me, have you ever watched an old anime called Trigun? It is also a post-apocalyptic western fantasy sci-fi series with aliens, mutants, and robots.
To me, these would look right at home in the Superfriends episode my son was watching earlier - set on the futuristic/old West planet of Texarkana. The evil posse was composed of meat men & robot men, and robot horses. Now, there was no magic users involved in that particular episode, but there's plenty in that old cartooon corner of the DC universe.
Although, come to think of it, they remind me of a book I have: "The Twist" from Richard Calder (also author of Dead Girls/Boys/Things, an offshoot of the cyberpunk movement). Post-apocalyptic weird west. I may dig that out again...
You know, I've seen a few episodes of Trigun here and there but never sat down and watched it. I'm sure I'd like it. Post-apocalyptic western fantasy sci-fi is right about where I was going, so glad that worked! LOL. Their is some Biblical-fantasy going on as well that doesn't come across with these characters without context (four horsemen et al).
Anne, I don't know that one! Which is odd because I watched that show all the time as a kid. Also have not heard of "The Twist". Will have to look it up! Was a HUGE fan of BraveStarr, though. Not many 80s shows (let alone cartoons) had a First Nations hero!
Anne, no...totally unfamiliar with that. Bizarre style!
Hehehe, it's actually a recent project done by graduating students of a media arts college, in part an homage, in part a parody of many of the strange sci-fi flavoured cartoon offerings of the 80's/early 90's. I was confused when I first saw it, thinking it was one I'd missed, but now I can only wish it was real I especially love the keytar... erm, keySWORD!

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
